Photo Gallery: Hydraulics class photos (MIT 12.809)|
Photos from a field trip during Hydraulics class (12.809). Larry Pratt took us out on his boat to the East Gutter. between Naushon and Nonemessett Islands, near Woods Hole, MA. Pat and I used a fishing rod, a weighted string, and floating orange peels to decide if the flow through the East Gutter was hydraulically controlled. We had a beautiful sunny day for the trip. Holly and Rebecca went to the same site a few weeks later on a cold, grey, day, but they did get to catch some fish while they waited for the tide to get to the right height. They each caught a fish on their first cast!
